My daughter’s birthday!

Written by on September 29, 2008 in The Healing Journey with 0 Comments

Eleven years ago today I gave birth to one of the most beautiful people I know. Today is Brhiannon’s birthday. These photos were taken at Longwood Gardens on September 7th, their last fireworks event of the season (which was absolutely the most fantastic fireworks/water fountain display set to music I have ever seen).

I know this photo is a bit blurred, but I really like it.

The tree houses were beautiful. The natural recycled/reclaimed wood, the creative designs, the care they took in not hurting the trees just brought out the best in people. Everyone seemed to be smiling that day.

It’s always easy to love my little girl, but today it was even easier in such beautiful surroundings.

I love holding my girl’s hand, and what’s so wonderful is that she still loves holding mine. I cherish every moment with her, and on this day, I can’t keep thinking how wonderfully blessed I am. When I stop to think about it, I really am a very rich woman.

She’s like a flower, herself, isn’t she?

I love this girl!

Happy Birthday, Sweet Pea!!!
